Rules and eligibility criteria

  • The local project needs to be carried out by organizations of public interest. 
  • The local project must focus on vegetal biodiversity preservation (Trees plantation for conservation of threatened varieties, reforestation of degraded ecosystems and/or agroforestry practices).
  • The local project needs to have measurable results. The number of planted trees, the number & name of protected varieties/species and the surface planted & regenerated thanks to the help of L’OCCITANE are key.
  • A project with both measurable short-term effects and long-term impacts is strongly recommended.
  • A strong focus will be done on the capacity of the project to respond to specific local issues and on its sustainability, to become operationally and financially autonomous (including advocacy, awareness raising, local staff training; multiplicity of fundings).
  • To build a strong local relationship between the L’OCCITANE’s subsidiary and the NGO, we recommend that either the NGO has a local office and/or the project takes place in one of the countries listed here below.
